SUPP Downfall, Is Lesson Learned?

MCA Youth regrets criticism of Barisan leaders - The Star, 16th Nov 2006
  • MCA Youth has expressed regret at the strong criticism against certain MCA, Gerakan and MIC leaders at the Umno Youth general assembly, saying delegates should refrain from making fiery and emotional statements.
  • Its chief Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said the criticisms were made although Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had asked delegates to refrain from making irresponsible statements that would hurt the feelings of other races.
  • Describing it as more “poisonous and unreasonable than the opposition,” the MP for Bentong said Barisan component leaders must take into account the importance of all races when implementing any policy.
  • On Tuesday, Hishammuddin, who is Umno Youth chief, said that opportunistic leaders who stoked the “fires of disunity” had no place in Barisan Nasional.
  • He said Malaysia could not be moulded by the narrow-mindedness, chauvinism and extremism of those who play the racial card in order to emerge as champions of their race.

Najib reminds BN allies of pact - The Star, 16th Nov 2006

  • Barisan Nasional component parties that adhere to party policy uphold the social contract enshrined in the constitution and national policy although there may be individuals, who criticise or dispute the social contract, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.
  • The Deputy Prime Minister said that even if these individuals might be the main leaders of the component parties, they were still bound by the policy that was formulated collectively.

My advice to Abdullah, Najib and Hisham, don't make naive comments that would makes you swallow your own words at a later stage, it just makes you look even worse on international arena. Still in control, Pak Lah? "Take it easy, brother".

And to MIC, MCA and Gerakan, if you want to maintain people's support, maybe you should start thinking about where you stand and even forming alliance with opposition. The downfall of SUPP in Sarawak is a good indicator of our hatred on corruption, dicrimination and how the parties are able to maintain their "golden silence" even when they were being treated as second class citizens. "It reaches my boiling point" when seeing the parties that represent the minorities being critised and yet, still pledging for loyalty to the empire. It is about rights against wrongs and if you can't get this simple philosophy, no one can help you.

The time must come where the people must reject MCA and Gerakan, not because of anything except the bare fact that they are in Barisan doing nothing positive to protect the minorities except to join in the gravy train, for a ride.

I fear that's what UMNO's waiting for. If people don't vote MCA, MIC or Gerakan, and vote for opposition parties that are diametrically opposed to UMNO, there will be *no* basis for a coalition among the races.

And once that happens, the stakes go to the majority. In which case, knowing how representation in Malaysia's been rigged, UMNO will come to power with a full majority without the baggage of coalition partners.

By then it'll be too late.

MCA, MIC, gerakan should pull out fron BN. how can they stand all the criticisms and insults thrown at them i wonder. but of course it is not as easy as that. lots of implications like what xpyre voiced out. this is all because of UMNO being in control of ALL!!!!

It is not an easy decision to make but looking at the direction and "no time line" of gravy train as declared by UMNO leaders, more rakyat will sufferred, and this does not limit to Non-Bumi only but less-priviledged Bumi as well.

I would rather take the risk than seeing Malaysia sinking into a blackhole. We are far behind in our pursue of developed country's status in year 2020. Corruption and crime are on the rise, economy is stagnant and umployment rate is high, this is not what I want from my country.
